TMBA377: How Does Your Business Feel? post image

A short while back, Dan and Ian invited Rob Dix and Rob Bence on to the show to share their knowledge about property investment.

They have managed to build an empire around their podcast, The Property Podcast, and they have a membership community of over 10,000 people strong. They've also built a business that sources and manages properties for the clients that they find through their show.

We are excited to share the rest of that conversation with you today. Listen in to hear Rob and Rob share their perspective about what it takes to grow an audience around your expertise.

TMBA376: Should You Base Yourself in Eastern Europe? post image

A few weeks ago, Dan and Ian published their first episode of a new series on this podcast, where they decided to seek out the answer to a question that every location-independent entrepreneur has struggled with at one point in time: If I can live anywhere in the world, where should that be?

On this week's episode, they will be focusing on two nations in Eastern Europe: Hungary and Georgia.

Clayton Cornell runs his own lead-generation business online, as well as one of Dan and Ian's longtime favorite blogs called Spartan Traveler. On this podcast, Clayton shares his story about what led him to the capitol of Hungary, Budapest.

You'll also hear from Dana Lindahl. Dana has chosen the nation of Georgia as his home base, as his wife has recently started a business there. You'll hear about what that process was like, as well as the entrepreneurial climate in this former Soviet country.

TMBA375: How 100s Of Young Entrepreneurs are Making Generational Wealth in Less Than 5 Years post image

In the past, Dan and Ian have explored what they like to call the "Amazon Gold Rush" on this podcast.

Today's show is inspired by someone that Dan recently spent some time with who is knee deep in that movement. Kevin Graham is the founder of Bulk Buy Hosting, but he has also made a considerable amount of money through his own Amazon affiliate business.

The Amazon ecosystem is a huge opportunity, and is creating generational wealth for many crafty, young entrepreneurs.

Kevin has had this kind of success, and on this episode, we will walk you through every step of how to create one of these businesses and get them ranking in search engines.

This is one of the most business-focused episodes we have ever done on this podcast. If you are considering this path in your online business ventures, this is the episode for you.

A few weeks ago, Dan and Ian sent out an email to the listeners of this podcast, in an attempt to get to know the audience a little better.

How Others Can Help When You’re First Starting Your Entrepreneurial Journey post image

I was on the phone with a friend this week who aspires to get his PhD in the next few years. They are notoriously difficult to complete -- with deadlines sometimes years away and distant advisors, it’s easy to procrastinate and feel isolated in the task.
